This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Base install is in between 2 and 2.2 Gb but you need a bit more if you want to use it. As shoun by @amol sale 5 Gb is the minumum (and I think Ubuntu will also abort the installation if it thinks there is not enough space) – Rinzwind Aug 21 '12 at 7:34
